Knockerdown Cottages

Knockerdown Cottages is the perfect place for a weekend reunion, party, celebration or get together, where you can have all your friends and family staying in one location for 3 nights and enjoy the celebrations without having to pack up and rush off in the morning. A group of traditionally stone built self-catered cottages each sleeping between 2 and 11 people are all equipped for individual guests needs so they can also take time to relax in their own space.

Nestled amongst the cottages is a central leisure building with games room, indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, spa and two function rooms. Our own little path leads across the road to a traditional country pub serving local beers and home cooked meals. We also have a children’s play area and large meadow for games and activities to keep the more active members of your group busy! The surrounding countryside or nearby Carsington reservoir is perfect for a Friday afternoon ramble or quiet Sunday morning walk to clear the head.

Egginton Hall

Egginton Hall provides a dramatic and impressive setting for any special event, with beautiful manicured grounds which are complimented by the Lake with 18th Century petite iron bridge. It is the prefect venue for special birthday celebrations, anniversary parties, launch parties or smaller, more intimate events where your guests can really enjoy and appreciate their surroundings in this wonderful woodland setting. Through the woodland is our dome roofed Summer House which you can dress with your own magical decorations for a drinks reception area or even renew your vows. Other beautiful drinks reception areas by the lake or on the island area are framed by the Country House as a stunning backdrop.

For your party or celebration you can erect your own marquee or tent in a variety of locations. An adjacent paddock provides plenty of parking for up to 120 guests. Events at Egginton Hall are limited in numbers as the House is occupied as a private residence and therefore please contact us early to avoid disappointment.
